CodeBytes: Hangman

Crowd Compass
308 SW Second Ave., Suite 200, Portland, OR
Portland, OR 97204, us (map)



In this weeks code challenge we will be building the classic game of Hangman.

Building this game will consist of a few parts.
- We will need to select a word for the user to guess at. - We will need to take user input(guesses) and determine if the guess is correct. - We will need to to have a win/lose condition.

Stretch goals: - Use an API to provide a random word - Turn it into a web app

If it's been a while, here is a refresher on the rules of hangman: http://www.wikihow.com/Play-Hangman

This challenge is great for all skill levels and be completed as simplistically or complexly as you feel comfortable with. We will have mentors for Ruby, Python, Node, and JS. All languages are welcome, what we don't know we can learn together.

As mentioned in the last meetup, we are asking for voluntary meetup dues to help cover costs. The suggested donation is $3 per meetup or $25 for the rest of the year.

This is voluntary, and is not intended to stop anyone from coming to the meetup. If you would like to help us out use the "Chip in" button on the left sidebar. All meetup dues go directly to paying for the meetup.com subscription, food, and space costs.

If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to reach out to Sam or Alison.
